Move my content! - Migrating legacy content into Drupal using the Migrate project
So your client wants a shiny new Drupal site. Great! But how do they get all their non-Drupal legacy data into the new system? This session will provide an overview of using the Migrate module to migrate data into Drupal using a flexible object oriented framework to write your own migrations, as well as addressing some common pitfalls to be aware of when doing so.
Content migration is certainly no easy undertaking, but the Migrate project makes a developer's life a lot easier!
About Brandon Kalber
I'm a Web Developer currently working with Orlando agency Designzillas. I have been working primarily with Drupal for the last 5 years and in that time, have been lucky to get to work on some really cool projects including 2 years with D.C. United which is part of Major League Soccer. I really love working with and learning from other Drupal folks across the community and continue to be excited about what's coming next.
Music is my first love and I have been playing bass for as long as I can remember. When I'm not talking about PHP arrays and foreach loops, I try to play as much music as possible. I freelance with some local Orlando groups and can occasionally be seen performing in the Moroccan pavilion at Epcot.
Aside from that, I'm enjoying learning Python, hanging out with my awesome girlfriend and drinking red wine.
